Funny headline, but the buzz on this is that it’s a great flick. I really admire Foster for standing by her friend Mel Gibson when the publicity got terrible for him.

I was thinking, was this the best headline the author could come up with? And, where was the editor?

I thought hers looked okay in the movie ‘Nell’.

Has she changed it in some way?

****Jodie Foster is bullish on ‘The Beaver’****

She should be, as she has been selling it since she was quite young.

“Jodie Foster is bullish on ‘The Beaver’”

Somewhere June Cleaver is in the afterlife saying, “Darn, ripped off again”.

The movie might be good. Its just too bad what Mel did to his life. There aren’t too many people like Foster that would stand up for someone like Mel or give him a second chance.

The dirtiest line ever missed by the censors was when June said to Ward:

"Ward, weren't you were a little rough on the Beaver last night?"

I never saw the movie, but the comment is based on the fact that HollyWeird does sell movie tickets largely on sex. That is what the reference was about.

I only vaguely remember something about this particular actress being a student in good standing at an Ivy league college. Or, perhaps it was another one. In any case, just an image on a screen as far as I can see.

The NYC branch of my family has a black sheep in the past - a script writer in Hollywood. It was a long time ago, but not something we talked about much. “Theatre people” and all that, you know.

This past year she and her daughter ( or son ? ) were on the field for a half time show during a bowl game . They surprised her by bringing out her husband who is serving in Aphganistan . She seemed very happy to see him .

The movie might be good. Its just too bad what Mel did to his life.

How many people would look as bad as, or worse than, Mel if their private phone conversations were sold to internet gossip sites, and every alleged detail discussed on the "evening news?"
